Announcing the 2024 Hickory Women’s Expo

Hickory Shows is excited to announce the 2024 Hickory Women’s Expo. The show will take place August 24-25, 2024 at the Hickory Metro Convention Center.

The goal of the Hickory Women’s Expo is to create a fun, exciting event for Women in the Hickory-Unifour area that is empowering, inspiring, and connects these women to goods, services, and opportunities in the community. “The Hickory area has so much to offer, but there wasn’t an event to connect the people with the products and services. We saw an opportunity to bridge that gap and create an amazing experience for women in the region,” stated organizer Kate Dillon.

The show will include a stage for presentations, entertainment, and a fashion show. The show floor will include a wide variety of booths- anything from mini-makeovers to investing advice.

Save the Date – Make it a Weekend

Invite your girlfriends from out of town and have a fun girls weekend. There will be special rates at the hotels surrounding the convention center, so you can even turn this August weekend into a mini vacation.

Call for Exhibitors

Hickory Shows is looking for exhibitors in a number of categories. The overall theme is Beauty, Wellness, and Wealth. We have just opened the application process. It is available on our website at:
